Man, you are really starting to sound like someone I used to know at a now-defunct forum that will remain nameless. Perhaps I'm wrong, but the parallels are really quite striking. Good cop?

Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Why Don't You Like the 80's?

If there is any question about my identity, or any perception that I am connected to other "personas", I am willing to provide proof that everything I post here is completely straightforward and honest. I am posting under my real name, and I can document that my self-description as a trained musician (UW school of music, nothing elite or anything) and former member of numerous minor GD-influenced bar bands is accurate.

This forum is the only substantial internet discussion of the Grateful Dead I have taken part in since usenet in the 90s, apart from some half-hearted efforts to interest the young people of 4chan's /mu/ board in the Grateful Dead. Since that is not a "now-defunct forum" I am quite confident I am not the individual of which you are thinking.

I confess I am rather curious who I am being confused with, was there another poster who was associated with an obsession with trying to fit the GD into the tradition of European art music as exemplified by Ludwig B. and the boys?
